    Gotta love that special flavor of crazy that comes out in Florida.

    ?

    Do the other states not have their own Russian/Ukrainian hit squads? How do you get anything done?

    How can a Senator defend membership of a club that excludes minorities in this day and age?

    Democrat not GOP but this form of "conservativism" needs to die whether DNC or GOP or apolitical.

    There's plenty of 'traditions' which are racist and should end, so that's a pretty poor excuse if you ask me.
    Keep on keepin' the beat alive!

    Not sure what point you're trying to make with that one Aimless. Private donations are accepted in every country that I know of. Indeed that's how many countries are paying for vaccines, they get a donation for the vaccine to match the expenditure that then goes on the vaccines.

    This is the Governor's politics to deploy the troops, they're not hired guns.

    The right continues it's culture war. Against a comic book character that has dressed in the American flag and fought Nazis since he was created as suddenly to political.

    Wait until they read up on the punisher, which for some reason is a popular logo with the blue lives matter crowd.

    Not that it's unusual for them not to understand the source material:


    ..that cartoon was apparently not trying to make fun of Trump.

    Spent my days watching and waiting, killed my faith participating
    In this crusade still masquerading as the lie that we're creating
    Blinding lights leave me in silence, hopes and dreams taken with violence
    Right and wrong have made alliance, now I will turn in defiance

    Oh yeah, "conservatives" routinely say universal healthcare is SSSocialism, and will eventually destroy the Freee Market for-profit model of American Capitalism. They said the same thing about Slavery, Voting Rights, Education, and the Judiciary. They were wrong then, and they're wrong now.

    We've always had a struggle between individual rights and the common good....but it's embarrassing that so many people, who are victims of misinformation/disinformation, continue to think they are "Patriots" so long as they fight against *anything* aimed at the common good.

    I could have had class. I could have been a contender.
    I could have been somebody. Instead of a bum
    Which is what I am

    I aim at the stars
    But sometimes I hit London

    Mainstream conservatism is stupid, racist, and gross:

    Fox & Friends pundits are also stoking fears about those Afghan refugees coming to America. They're just upset by the 2020 Census showing an increase in ethnic diversity, and a decline in the White population.

    Went down the rabbit hole to find a smartass answer and instead came away with the realization that the U.S. is much more racist than I thought.

    Funny anecdote: when I was a Census enumerator waayy back in 1990, the term Caucasian was still a choice for racial identity. Most people I interviewed had never heard that word, and didn't even know what it meant.


    edit: Fuzzy is right tho, even if he wasn't pedantic as usual: https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fa...e/US/RHI625219 (see Hispanic origin).
